Liverpool’s new punk heroes The Thespians to play Eric’s

Formed in April 2010, The Thespians performed their first gig at Liverpool’s Mathew St Festival. Just one year later and with three headline appearances at the Liverpool o2 Academy already under their belt, the punk 4-piece play Mathew Street’s legendary Eric’s venue on Sat 19th Nov

In 2011 The Thespians have headlined the Dawson’s stage at Chester Rocks Festival, a bill also including Iggy and The Stooges and have recently licensed two songs, ‘First Impressions’ and ‘The Crash’ to MTV New York. Their video for debut release, ‘Reason To Reason’, shot last December with top director, Duncan Caterall went viral within days of uploading it to Youtube and has now racked up over 38,000 views.

BBC Radio Merseyside labelled them one of the ‘best upcoming Liverpool bands’ and recently asked them to perform on the BBC Introducing stage at Liverpool’s Mathew St Festival.

Here’s what our editor Rich Denton said at this years Mathew Street Festival: ‘The punk four piece followed with a set that could have come straight out of New York. Catchy riffs and memorable vocals. These leather clad rebels look set for big things’
